Anambra Election: 2 Marching Orders Buhari Gave Security Agencies As November 6 Approaches

The November 6 guber election in Anambra State is fast approaching and the state is facing security challenges. Not long ago, the husband of former DG of NAFDAC, Dr. Chike Akunyili was killed by unknown gunmen.

While INEC and the Police are ready for the election, some groups in the state are doing everything to frustrate the efforts of INEC to ensure that the people elect a new Governor come November 6.

However, the President after his meeting with security chiefs in Abuja today gave 2 marching orders to the Army, Police, Airforce, and other security agencies as it concerns the November 6 election in Anambra State.

That will form the basis of our discussion in this article. 

What are the marching orders? 

1) Ensure nothing stops the November 6 guber election in the state

According to Vanguard newspaper, the President made it clear that nothing must stop the November 6 guber election in the state.

This is necessary because the activities of the unknown gunmen are threatening the guber election in the state. While the police continue to fight to bring the situation under control, the unknown gunmen continue to create chaos in the state.

However, this marching order will boost the morale of the security agencies to do everything possible to ensure that people come out and vote successfully on the election day. 

2) Use security agencies to guard the whole environment if there is a need for it 

The President understands that the activities of the unknown gunmen may make people to be scared of coming out on November 6 to vote.

Hence the reason he asked that the security agencies to guard the whole environment if there is a need for such.

But I don't support this directive because the heavy presence of the security agencies may also put fear in the minds of the people. I urge the people of Anambra State to go out and vote for the candidate of their choice while being security conscious.
